Hi,

I have used VS 2005 to create an update statement to an Access table but it is throwing the following error:

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Syntax error in UPDATE statement.

The AccessDataSource control's SQL Statement and parameters look like so...

UpdateCommand="UPDATE [tblCustomers] SET [Customer_name] = ?, [Customer_Username] = ?, [Customer_Password] = ?, [Customer_Live] = ?, WHERE [CustomerID] = ?"

Parameters -

<UpdateParameters>
            <asp:Parameter Name="Customer_name" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="Customer_Username" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="Customer_Password" Type="String" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="Customer_Live" Type="Boolean" />
            <asp:Parameter Name="CustomerID" Type="Int32" />
        </UpdateParameters>

Is anyone able to see any issues?

Many thanks,

Rit

Are you supplying string values as:

'Customer Name'

One other possibility I guess is the Boolean DataType. In Access it is Yes/No. What you are supplying?

Hi rpkhare

The string values are coming straigh from the Gridview as I am using the Update command button.

The data type Customer_Live was Yes/No but have just changed it to True/False but still getting this error.

My gridview looks like this...



<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="CustomerID" DataSourceID="AccessDataSource1" Width="100%" CellPadding="4" AlternatingRowStyle-BackColor="#eeeeee" BorderWidth="1px" BorderColor="#EEEEEE">
        <Columns>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Customer_name" HeaderText="Customer Name" SortExpression="Customer_name" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Customer_Username" HeaderText="Username" SortExpression="Customer_Username" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Customer_Password" HeaderText="Password" SortExpression="Customer_Password" />
            <asp:CheckBoxField DataField="Customer_Live" HeaderText="Live?" SortExpression="Customer_Live" />
            <asp:CommandField ShowEditButton="True" />
            <asp:TemplateField ShowHeader="False">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CausesValidation="False" CommandName="Delete" Text=" X " OnClientClick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this record?');" ForeColor="red"></asp:LinkButton>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:TemplateField>
        </Columns>
    </asp:GridView>

I think you need to still add single quotes in the query:

UpdateCommand="UPDATE [tblCustomers] SET [Customer_name] = ' " + <GridViewValue> + " ' "

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
